In April 2013, the Brazilian artist Caio Reisewitz had the opportunity to study the city of Altamira: the disorderly growth, the devastation of the forest, and the neglect of the indigenous community in the wake of the construction of the Belo_Monte Hydroelectric Power Plant.
He returned to Altamira in April 2018 to photograph the environmental impact after the construction of the dams.
One of Brazil’s leading contemporary photographers, Caio Reisewitz has frequently exhibited in South America and in Europe, and represented Brazil at the 2005 Venice Biennale.
